Upland Brewing has been doing lot of exciting things lately…..from their revival of Champagne Velvet to their new Wood Shop sour program, the beers just keep getting better and better.
Today we had a chance to sample the latest version of one of my all time favorite Upland Brewing beer names, Marion The Agrarian. As Upland puts it, “
Marion the Agrarian isn’t quite your typical farmer, and the beer we named after her isn’t quite your typical Farmhouse Ale, either.” Marion The Agrarian uses locally-sourced honey as well as a dry-hopping with Mandarina Bavaria and Mosaic hops…and it has some really unique flavors going on that we really enjoyed.
We found the aroma to be all about hops with some piney and spicy notes and maybe a touch of grapefruit. The flavors were citrusy (mostly grapefruit) with some additional dull sweetness from the honey to balance it out nicely. This beer was really drinkable and refreshing with an almost dry spiciness at the end that we really liked.
Marion The Agrarian is available now on draft and in 4-packs so get out there and try it for yourself. And when you do, be sure to let us know what YOU think.
